Aventinus, the Wheat Doppelbock of Bavaria, has always been known to be the most intense and complex wheat beer in the world. This was the case for the past sixty years, but not anymore...
Up until the 1940s, Aventinus was shipped all over Bavaria in containers lacking temperature control. Consequently, the precious drink partially froze during transportation. Unaware that the brew was concentrated by the separation of water from the liquid. People were baffled by this unique version of Aventinus. By chance, the first Aventinus Eisbock was created.
Well aware of this story, Hans Peter Drexler, brewmaster of the Schneider brewery, decided to recreate this classic "mistake" in a modern controlled facility. Thus, the Aventinus Eisbock is reborn sixty years later ... Prost!

Frothmeister's rating

Frothmeister (783) - Ontario, - MAY 2, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma has VERY evident alcohol, yeast, banana, faint cherry, and dried fruits. Taste is very heavy on dried fruits, impressively so. Sweet, with molasses, dark malts, again dried fruits aplenty, and a finish of alcohol and dried cherries. A BIG beer in every way. This is going to knock me on my a@#. Impressive.

hauxe (634) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 30, 2017
Aged 1 year in the cellar. Pours brown with a thick, frothy head. Aroma is typical Weizen, but a bit musty, cherry undertones. Noticeable up front is a mildly tart red berry taste set over a sweet malty caramel base. Hints of chocolate and toffee. Finishes with more of the same, but with increasing warmth. Not among the most complex bocks Ive drunk, but it has a smooth, big-bodied rich consistency that makes it a pleasure to drink. Good stuff.

Cwieku666 (156) - Wrocław, POLAND - APR 26, 2017
Aromat: Słodki i intensywny zapach dojrzałych bananw z domieszką goździka, spodu od ciasta i rodzynek. W tle pałęta się też trochę gumy balonowej. Wygląd: Ciemnobrązowe, z bujną pianą po byku, ktra szybko redukuje się do niewielkiej obrączki. Smak: Całość jest słodka, wyklejająca, likierowata i lekko alkoholowa. Ponownie na pierwszym planie czuć dojrzałe banany. W tle mieszają się goździkowe, rodzynkowe i chlebowe posmaki. Wysycenie dość wysokie i razem z alkoholem lekko drapie w przełyku. Oglnie: Dobre degustacyjne piwo, znaczniej bardziej smakowało mi niż np. eisbock z Pinty (pewnie dlatego, że to jest koźlak pszeniczny, a nie zwykły).

BeardedAvenger (608) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Stewed fruit/berry aroma, with yeast and cloves. An opaque dark brown. Thin but creamy off-white head. Sweet at first. Then sourness develops and some bitterness. Matches the aroma, stewed fruit, berries. Heavy. Oily. A fizz of carbonation. Long, warming, finish. A great winter beer (ignoring that its spring now). Enjoyable and subtle.

Wolfbass (1143) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 22, 2017
Sinceramente, mi aspettavo un attimino meglio, invece la classicissima superbock teutonica, molto calorosa e burrosa, ma nasconde ottimamente il grado alcolico.

aardvark1 (12) - POLAND - APR 22, 2017
Bardzo wysoka i ładna piana jak na zawartość alkoholu. W zapachu bardzo winne i czerwone owoce, zwłaszcza wiśnie. Alkohol intensywnie rozgrzewa przełyk, trochę zbyt intensywnie, ujawniają się akcenty pszeniczne, ktrych nie wyczułem w zapachu

Du?o banana, gumy balonowej i estrw generalnie, alkohol kojarzy mi si? z jakim? s?odkim likierem. Po ogrzaniu lekki rozpuszczalnik. Ca?kiem dobre

Towey1989 (2472) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2017
Bottle from The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a clear deep brown colour with a ruby tiny and a thin off white head. Aroma of plum, raisin, fig, some caramel, slight cola, a little chocolate, a hint of alcohol, subtle smoke and spice. Taste of plum, raisin, fig, some caramel, slight cola, a little chocolate, a hint of toasted malts, subtle alcohol and spice. Full bodied and soft carbonation. A long, sweet, warming, caramel and fruity finish. Malty, fruity and very complex. Sweet but the alcohol gives it a bitter bite and subtle crispness. A big, boozy beer.
